Watauga Residence Hall

Building Address: 2200 Katharine Stinson Drive (show on map)

Building Abbreviation: WAT

Building Number: 010

Precinct: North

Located on the east campus of NC State, five-story Watauga Hall is the second residence hall by that name. The first was destroyed by fire in 1901 during Thanksgiving weekend. With the help of students who kept it wet enough to save it, Holladay Hall survived the fire, despite the fact that the heat could be felt as far as Hillsborough Street.

The name of the building honors the famous Watauga Club, a group of young Raleigh professionals who pressed the legislature to establish NC State.
